Students from a San Ramon middle school arrived home from Washington, D.C. Monday night with a sense of accomplishment and a $1,000 prize.

The Gale Ranch Middle School science team defeated 40 other schools to win the Department of Energy's National Science Bowl Competition. It culminated in a Round-Robin, Jeopardy-style contest with the Gale Ranch kids defeating a team from Vancouver, Washington.

"It was definitely a lot harder than we thought because there were a lot of good teams from all over the nation, so to win was a real challenge," said Rishi Krishnan.

The $1,000 prize goes to Gale Ranch's science department.
